Windies to exploit Aus’ weaknesses: Skipper Holder

West Indies will be aiming to exploit some of the chinks in Australia’s armour which were exposed during the just concluded series against New Zealand, skipper Jason Holder has said.

Australia beat New Zealand 2-0 in the three-Test series but suffered several anxious moments in the final Test in Adelaide when they scraped home by three wickets in pursuit of a meagre 187 for victory, reports CMC. The West Indies face Australia in the first Test of the three-match series starting in Hobart on December 10.

“We saw weaknesses where we could exploit but it’s important we analyse each batsman and bowler and try to come up with game plans that are best suited for the conditions that we are playing in,” Holder told reporters here on Monday.

“There are some new faces mixed with some guys who have been in some rich veins of form. It’s important we put some pressure on their middle order. I think if we get early wickets with the new ball, you can get guys like Shaun Marsh and those guys who are now trying to make their way back into the side, put them under some pressure to score.”
